Title (EN) VISUAL DETECTION OF ELECTROCAUTERY ARCING
(FR) DÉTECTION VISUELLE D'ARCS D'ÉLECTROCAUTÉRISATION
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems for detecting undesirable electrocautery arcing events during an electrocautery surgical procedure may include introducing an electrosurgical treatment instrument to a surgical site to perform an electrocautery surgical procedure. A healthcare provider may view the surgical site with a surgical camera assembly having a surgical field-of-view. The healthcare provider also may view a portion of the electrosurgical treatment instrument with an electrocautery arc detection system including an arc detection camera having an arc detection field-of-view different than the surgical field-of-view obtained by the surgical camera. The electrocautery arc detection system may identify thermal infrared emission or tissue color changes as indicators of undesirable electrocautery arcing. Some implementations alert a healthcare provider of undesirable electrocautery arcing.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour détecter des formations d'arc d'électrocautérisation indésirables pendant une intervention chirurgicale d'électrocautérisation, pouvant comprendre l'introduction d'un instrument de traitement électrochirurgical à un site chirurgical pour effectuer une intervention chirurgicale d'électrocautérisation. Un prestataire de soins peut visualiser le site chirurgical avec un ensemble caméra chirurgicale ayant un champ de vision chirurgical. Le prestataire de soins peut également visualiser une partie de l'instrument de traitement électrochirurgical avec un système de détection d'arc d'électrocautérisation comprenant une caméra de détection d'arc ayant un champ de vision de détection d'arc différent du champ de vision chirurgical obtenu par la caméra chirurgicale. Le système de détection d'arc d'électrocautérisation peut identifier des changements de couleur de tissu ou d'émission infrarouge thermique en tant qu'indicateurs de formation d'arc d'électrocautérisation indésirable. Certains modes de réalisation alerte un prestataire de soins d'une formation d'arc d'électrocautérisation indésirable.
